Energy Transition

Energy Transition

Details  The future will not be like the past.
Unsustainable systems often present wicked problems. Transition Engineering creates surprising opportunities and innovative perspectives by taking on wicked problems.

The Problem is Un-Sustainability

The Problem is Un-Sustainability

Details  Specify the project requirements.
How do you define sustainability? Transition Engineering involves a shift of perspective from adding more sustainable options to shifting unsustainable energy and material production.

The MythBusting

The MythBusting

Details  One of the projects GATE is taking on in 2019 is to prepare technology probability or "MythBusting" briefs. There is no more time to wait for technologies to come along if the probability is small that they will work, will be viable, or will actually solve a problem if they did work.

There is power in numbers

Anyone in any field can join the Transition Engineering movement. Transition Engineers design and carry out the projects of change. We work from a systems perspective to strategically plan changes to today's engineered systems so they fit into the future we want. Transition involves the whole of society, economy, law, ecology, infrastructure, and energy and material supply chains. We use the Interdisciplinary Transition, Innovation, Management and Engineering (InTIME) methodology to generate new opportunities through disruptive ideas. These new ideas are developed into shift projects with the mission of long-term engineering and management of the 80% fossil fuel production decline required to realize global warming mitigation targets. Transition Engineering achieves  the COP21 Targets and Sustainable Development Goals, one project at a time.

Let's Act InTIME 

Join us! We need help on this campaign. We have the foundations to launch the transition. The world is calling out for change, but who can actually do what needs to be done? We, as engineers have the responsibility to change the systems that are right now the business-as-usual. We are the only ones who can.

About Transition Engineering

About Transition Engineering

Details  The next big challenge for all engineering fields is handling wicked problems. Wicked problems are successful and profitable engineered systems that are also unsustainable. Our energy and material systems provide huge benefits and conveniences, and they make money. But they also are unsustainable, incur unacceptable external costs, and pose environmental and social risks. Transition Engineering is emerging to deal with wicked problems. The 7-step approach results in innovative transition shift projects. Explore the Knowledge and Training resources where GATE members share experience with innovating, engineering and managing transition shift projects.

GATE Organization

GATE Organization

Details  We are inspired by history - 100 years ago 62 engineers in New York got together and started what would become Safety Engineering, and that action has changed the world. Now, we will change the future - by changing existing systems - one engineering project at a time. GATE is a peer-to-peer organization set up to facilitate the agile learning needed for the emergence of a new discipline - Transition Engineering.
